Employee Benefits

One of the ways we foster employee engagement is by providing an outstanding package of benefits

Health Insurance
Employees have the option of choosing one of three medical plans: a preferred provider organization (PPO), a PPO Value Plan, and a high-deductible health plan (HDHP). For all regular full-time employees, Best Point Education & Behavioral Health makes a greater-than-market contribution to the premium cost, covering 90% of the premium for a single plan and 75% of the premium for a 2+ person plan.

Health Savings Account (HSA)
A Health Savings Account is a pre-tax reimbursement account for those enrolled in the High Deductible Health Plan. Best Point Education & Behavioral Health subsidizes the HSA at the rate of $2 for every $1 an employee contributes with a maximum monthly employer contribution of $70 per month for a single plan or $100 per month for the employee plus-plan.

Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA)
A Flexible Spending Account allows you to set aside some of your income on a pre-tax basis to pay for certain health or daycare expenses that may not be covered as part of your benefit plans. FSAs give you the opportunity to pay less for planned expenditures. Our organization offers two types of accounts: a health care account and a dependent care account.

Dental & Vision Insurance
Best Point Education & Behavioral Health covers between 70% and 90% of the dental premium. We also offer a voluntary vision plan through EyeMed.

Education Partnership with University of Cincinnati
Best Point employees and their spouse’s/legal partner’s and their unmarried children receive 10% off their tuition at University of Cincinnati in online courses! The list of eligible courses is always growing and includes master, bachelor’s, and associate level courses of study plus certificates in selected course offerings as well.

Basic Life/Accidental Death & Dismemberment Insurance
Life insurance is an important part of your financial well-being, especially if others depend on you for support. Best Point Education & Behavioral Health provides basic life and AD&D coverage at 2-1/2 times your salary at no cost to you.

Retirement Benefits
Best Point Education & Behavioral Health provides an opportunity for you to participate in a defined contribution (403b) plan on the first day of employment.
